Turtwig is one of the starting Pokémon (which also includes Chimchar and Piplup). In every ''Pokémon'' game (or at least in the main series), there is a grass type starter Pokémon. The other grass type of starter Pokémon in the series includes, and in National Pokédex order, [[Bulbasaur]], [[Chikorita]], and [[Treecko]]. Turtwigs main advantage is that it has healing moves, for example; absorb, mega drain and giga drain which are very useful.

Trophy descriptionsEdit

"A Tiny Leaf Pokemon. Despite its animal appearance, Turtwig actually has vegetation sprouting from its head. The shell on its back is made of soil and hardens when it drinks water. Much like a plant, Turtwig performs photosynthesis, absorbing sunlight and making oxygen. It also relies heavily on water to keep its plant healthy and thus spends a lot of time near lakes."

Turtwig-anime

Turtwig and Pikachu in the anime.

Turtwig is the second Pokémon that Ash catches in Sinnoh. In the episode where Ash catches him, Team Rocket kidnaps Ash's Pikachu. Soon after they escaped in their balloon, it crashed. Noticing that the Pikachu was in trouble, Turtwig defended him against the team. Once Ash arrived, Turtwig thought falsely that they were trying to capture Pikachu, so Turtwig grabbed the tired Pokémon and ran. Later on, the misunderstandings were forgiven, and at the end of the show, Turtwig joins Ash's team.

In episode 6 of Diamond and Pearl, Ash's Turtwig battled with Paul's Chimchar, but lost.

In the manga, the character Diamond has a Turtwig.
